    Lame Old Song - Proof that today's popular music is just as good -- and bad -- as it's always been

    Throw a stick and you're apt to hit someone who thinks the current pop scene is the worst ever. And who, other than nine-year-old white girls, could argue with that logic? Britney Spears and Celine Dion, to name just two, seem more like actors portra...

    Bandwidth - Where will all the underaged children go?

    What's Fort Lauderdale's nightlife going to look like when we kick out all the underage kids? Skip Murray of the Chili Pepper sees it turning into a "faceless condo hotel earlybird special" kind of place now that the city commission has resurrected -...

    Bon Jovi - Crush (Island)

    Samantha 7 Samantha 7 (Portait/C2 Records) The main difference between these discs is that one doesn't suck nearly as badly as it ought to, while the other does -- and then some. In the mondo-suckage category, Bon Jovi's latest proves nothing excep...

    Teddy Thompson - Teddy Thompson (Virgin Records)

    Rickie Lee Jones It's Like This (Artemis Records) He's the son of Richard and Linda Thompson -- hence the no-shit review, because Teddy's the heir to more than three decades' worth of giddy accolades and piss-poor sales -- and dear ol' Dad shows u...

    Pole - Pole 3 (Matador Records)

    Cut from the same digital cloth as its predecessors, Pole 1 and Pole 2 (the only true reference points of any value here), Pole 3 is more minimalist future dub from German eccentric Stefan Betke. Ghostly echoes and thickened bass patterns form the sk...

    Horse Attitudes - The Rocking Horse Winner races for the prize

    D.H. Lawrence's short story The Rocking-Horse Winner is a cautionary fable about greed. It ends with the death of a child, his toy horse transporting his soul to the hereafter. In the case of the suburban Broward band of the same name, the arrangemen...

    Bandwidth - Bandwidth spends a night at the Metal Factory

    Mid-August at the posher-than-thou Power Studios in Miami's Design District: A well-dressed throng sips expensive drinks as the lights are slowly dimmed and the velvet curtains part to reveal local act Sunday Driver. Technicians make sure guitars are...

    Califone - Califone (Road Cone)

    At first blush, Tim Rutili's five-song EP about disaster, grace, dumb luck, and fear of machinery might seem like a cynical prayer for peacenik John Lennon: consider the hollow-sounding, resonating piano of the disc's opener, "Electric Fence," and it...

    Victoria Williams - Water to Drink (Atlantic)

    Though she's been at it for years, Victoria Williams is probably better known as a celebrity with an illness than she is as a visionary writer and performer. Diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1992, Williams first caught massive media attention whe...

    Seor Coconut y Su Conjunto - El Baile Alemn (Emperor Norton Records)

    On paper it is, at best, a dubious concept: a Latin dance combo covering German avant-garde pioneers Kraftwerk's repetitive back catalog. It would seem that the two types of music, both of which possess a somewhat limited appeal, would probably hold ...

    Sumner Vacation - Sting and the art of corporate rock

    Bandwidth - The Stop the Violence Benefit hits this weekend

    Although it's truly a tiny space, Fort Lauderdale's Shed Records is doing a big service, providing a mellow, easygoing, and extremely hip scene in a community weighed down by festering strip malls and pervasive corporate record-store tyranny. Now, e...

    Sparks - Balls (Oglio Records)

    The marvelously twisted Mael brothers, known in pop circles as Sparks for the past 30 years or so, are living proof of the adage that if you stick around long enough, eventually you'll be back in style. Sparks began life as a slightly more than stand...

    Kevin Gordon - Down to the Well (Shanachie)

    It shouldn't come as a surprise that Kevin Gordon has never fit in with the Nashville program. He's simply too talented, too ambitious, and too ornery to make do with the prefab platters dished up by Music City denizens. And that's a damn good thing....

    Billy Bragg & Wilco - Mermaid Avenue Vol. II (Elektra)

    Give or take an occasional oddity such as For a Few Dollars More or The Godfather, Part Two, sequels seldom work as well as their predecessors. The stories they offer are generally nothing more than mere embellishments of an already established theme...

    Reliable Connection - Tafari Music provides the reggae hookup

    It's a Sunday afternoon on Fort Lauderdale beach, where a brief thundershower and an onshore breeze have temporarily tempered the muggy scorch of August. On the patio of the beachfront Atlantis nightclub, bare-chested men and barely dressed women sip...

    Bandwidth - This Square Egg is well-rounded

    Back in April, the Poor House hosted a pair of fine hip-hop-influenced acts from our sultry neck of the woods, giving this observer the impression that some pretty good local music was lurking around. However, the two bands -- the Square Egg and Hash...

    764-HERO - Weekends of Sound (Up Records)

    764-HERO, while still at peace in the relative obscurity of the underground, is no longer the sort of new phenomenon that can be judged one release at a time. After two full-length albums (Salt Sinks, Sugar Floats and Get Here and Stay), an EP (We're...
